Biography

Christopher George Berger grew up in northeastern Ohio wanting to be a commercial pilot for the airlines.  Instead, he has become an exercise physiologist and student pilot who maintains an interest in healthy air travel even today.  After earning a B.S. in Geography from ASU, Dr Berger finished an M.S. in Sports Medicine from the University of Oregon and a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from the University of Kentucky.  He has held faculty positions at the University of Pittsburgh, The George Washington University, and the University of Indianapolis.

Dr Berger is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM EP-C) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (CSCS).  He also holds a certificate in Applied Statistical Analysis from the University of Kentucky Graduate School.

Research Interests

For quite some time now, Dr Berger has been interested in the science of weight management and the ability of resistance training to influence body composition and metabolism.  If you ever wanted to increase muscle mass and reduce body fat, Dr Berger's unique background in exercise physiology and nutrition is for you!  Recent work has focused on dietary thermogenesis, resistance training, and metabolic rate variances.
